My biggest motivation for creating my own blogs was to avoid the arbitrary censorship practiced by other blogs and various other Internet forums. Censorship will be avoided in my blogs -- there will be no deletion of comments, no closing of comment threads, no holding up of comments for moderation, and no commenter registration hassles. Comments containing nothing but insults and/or ad hominem attacks are discouraged. My non-response to a particular comment should not be interpreted as agreement, approval, or inability to answer.

Kenyan fundies are back in the news

There is a recent news article about the Kenyan fundies' opposition to a hominid fossil display that is planned for the Kenyan national museum. This blog's previous articles on this subject are here and here.

I think that paleoanthropologist Richard Leakey is not going to gain a lot of friends by his derogatory remark that the Kenyan national museum's hominid fossil collection "is one of Kenya's very few global claims to fame" --

"The National Museums of Kenya should be extremely strong in presenting a very forceful case for the evolutionary theory of the origins of mankind. The collection it holds is one of Kenya's very few global claims to fame and it must be forthright in defending its right to be at the forefront of this branch of science."
